2016 Posterra


Inspired by Mad Max, the recent post-apocalyptic film in which the Earth has been plunged into chaos by the exhaustion of oil, the McGill Concrete Canoe Team set out with a new take on recycling. Posterra, a union of the words ‘post’ and ‘terra’ – meaning ‘after earth’ – represents engineering in a world where there are few resources to engineer with.
